Brazilian things in NYC
Hi, I'm moving to NYC for 4 months from Brazil. I'm going to be living on 97th street on the east side and working near the Empire State Building. For those moments when I want something Brazilian, what are all the good Brazilian places for me to discover? (nightclubs, bakeries, food stores, cheap restaurants, music, etc.)
Just a reminder that music and nightclubs are beyond the scope of our boards, so please limit your responses to chowish ones!
if you can make all the way down and out to brooklyn (williamsburg), miss favela botequim is a fun place for good food, strong drinks, and festive atmosphere
you can make an evening of it by going to club bembe for good pan latin music and dancing (just a couple blocks away).
You should also post something on the Outer Boroughs Board. There's a large Brazilian community in Astoria and a very good Brazilian store on 34th Ave.
